Star Wars Producer Teases Season 2 of ‘The Acolyte’ Ahead of Season 1 Release

‘Star Wars: The Acolyte’ is the next chapter in the ‘Star Wars’ franchise. The show arrives on Disney+ on June 4th and it promises to be a completely different adventure.

The show will be set during the High Republic Era, also known as the Golden Age of Jedi Order due to their overwhelming numbers, and it seems that Headland is trying to use that setting to prove that Jedi don’t have the monopoly on Force and that they do too can be bad guys when context is given.

The show surprisingly stirred a lot of controversy online primarily due to having a female-led cast, and due to some controversial statements made by Headland regarding the Star Wars lore. Due to this controversy, rumors started spreading a couple of weeks ago that the show is canceled, even before it hit the screen.

Now in his latest interview with SFX Magazine Rayne Roberts, producer teased that the show might get a second season after all:

“We’ve got to get back into the writers’ room for season 2 to see where we’re at. We have some initial thoughts about what we want to do, but in terms of where the story will ultimately wrap up, that hasn’t been quite nailed down yet.”

This seems like great news for everyone anticipating the show and bad news for everyone anticipating its failure. The cast of the upcoming project includes Amandla Stenberg as Mae, a former padawan turned warrior; Lee Jung-Jae as Sol, a respected Jedi master; Manny Jacinto as Qimir, a former smuggler; Dafne Keen as Jecki Lon, a young Jedi; Jodie Turner-Smith as Mother Aniseya, leader of a coven of witches; Rebecca Henderson as Vernestra Rwoh, a Jedi Knight prodigy; Charlie Barnett as Yord Fandar, another Jedi; Carrie-Anne Moss as Indara, a Jedi Master; Joonas Suotamo as Kelnacca, a Wookiee Jedi master; and Amy Tsang. Dean-Charles Chapman and Margarita Levieva are also involved in the project.
